About the property

Villa near Vignale Monferrato, Piedmont, Italy - Tranquil Location with stunning views

Villa Gotta is an absolute treasure – tucked between the beautiful hilltop villages of Vignale Monferrato and Fubine in the heart of the Monferrato wine region of Piedmont. This 250 year old villa has recently been restored to luxurious standards – retaining traditional Piedmontese features blended with a modern touch for the most discerning of visitors. The villa is set over three floors with separate entrances with grand marble staircases at each wing, comprises five double bedrooms, five luxury bathrooms (four en-suite) and a spectacular 14 x 8.5 m swimming pool overlooking the villa’s private five acre forest. The specification throughout is of the highest standards including granite worktops in the kitchen, all modern appliances, tiled flooring throughout and underfloor heating. Totally secluded, the villa sits at the top of a hill with spectacular views of Vignale, San Lorenzo and Cuccaro and is truly one of the most stunning restorations in southern Piedmont.

About John Lappin

We live in London and absolutely love coming to Italy for the wonderful food and wine, the friendly people of Piedmont and the wonderful scenery of the Monferrato region.

John Lappin purchased this villa in 2005

Why John Lappin chose Fubine

A cascina on the top of a hill with magnificent views of stunning countryside. We had such a wonderful time restoring the property to its former state and believe it to be one of the best restorations in southern Piedmont.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments written in guest book:

'We are a family of 5 from Helsinki in Finland who spent 2 wonderful weeks in Villa Gotta. The villa is an absolute masterpiece, restored in the best possible taste. We have been to Tuscany and stayed in many villas but this has to be the best by far. The pool is beyond words - the beautiful beige liner makes the water a lovely green colour and we spent many days swimming and exploring beautiful Piedmont, with its wonderful food and wines.We will definitely be back.'

'Thank you John and Carol for a fantastic week in your villa. It is truly wonderful and we really wished we had another week here! The photographs do not do it justice so I suggest you upgrade your website!'

'We were a large party of 7 adults and 4 children and had ample room in your magnificent villa. The restoration is definitely the best I have seen and it is so peaceful you can't hear a sound. Truly wonderful!'
